Special guest: Mohamed Najem: clarinet

Sanaz's songs and poems really get under your skin. They are about longing: for love, freedom and for self-determination. Sometimes with a gentle, sometimes with a strong voice, but always impressive, always provocative, the poet and singer recites her mystical texts. Further she also sets these texts to music and performs them together with her repertoire of Turkish and Azerbaijani folk songs.
Sanaz comes from the Azerbaijani territory of Iran. The silencing of all female voices and the threat of reprisals against a critical, creative woman caused her to leave her home country in and move to Germany in , after two years spent in Istanbul.
She began her musical career in with the music group "Mah-e Manouche", which won the sponsorship award of the cultural department of the town of Wuppertal in /18.
Encouraged by the immensely positive feedback and praise of many fellow artists, musicians and critics she started a new project in , in which she recites her own texts in Persian and German and sings songs from Persia, Azerbaijan and Turkey.
She is accompanied by an illustrious ensemble of outstanding musicians: Benjamin Stein on oud, baglama, santoor and tar, by Uwe Böttcher on double bass, violin and viola and by Steffen Thormählen on various percussion instruments.
